Olivier Awards 2020 | Acting Nominations Predictions

It’s that time again! Another year, another Olivier Awards, another list of predicted nominations that I will probably get wrong. But, I do love to give it a go!

LEADING ACTOR IN A MUSICAL

  • Jac Yarrow for Joseph
  • Andy Nyman for Fiddler on the Roof
  • Sam Tutty for Dear Evan Hansen
  • Charlie Stemp for Mary Poppins

LEADING ACTRESS IN A MUSICAL

  • Miriam Teak-Lee for & Juliet
  • Zizi Strallen for Mary Poppins
  • Samantha Pauly for Evita
  • Judy Kuhn for Fiddler on the Roof

ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MUSICAL

  • Olivier Tompsett for & Juliet
  • Trent Saunders for Evita
  • David Bedella for & Juliet
  • Doug Colling for Dear Evan Hansen

ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MUSICAL

  • Melanie La Barrie for & Juliet
  • Cassidy Janson for & Juliet
  • Rebecca McKinnis for Dear Evan Hansen
  • Marisha Wallace for Waitress

Okay, these nominations I feel I may be stretching a bit. But there wasn’t a whole lot of new musicals that opened in the last year. Did they know they weren’t likely to stand a chance next to Dear Evan Hansen on the roster? Probably. Still, I think there’s been some fab performances over the last year. I’m hoping & Juliet isn’t overshadowed too much.

LEADING ACTOR IN A PLAY

  • Wendell Pierce for Death of a Salesman
  • Andrew Scott for Present Laughter
  • Laurie Kynaston for The Son
  • James McAvoy for Cyrano De Bergerac.

LEADING ACTRESS IN A PLAY

  • Sharon D Clarke for Death of a Salesman
  • Phoebe Waller-Bridge for Fleabag
  • Clare Perkins for Emilia
  • Claire Foy for Lungs

ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A PLAY

  • Eben Figueiredo for Cyrano De Bergerac
  • Richard Armitage for Uncle Vanya
  • Zubin Varla for Equus
  • John Light for The Son

ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A PLAY

  • Charity Wakefield for Emilia
  • Indira Varma for Present Laughter
  • Sophie Thompson for Present Laughter
  • Aimee Lou Wood for Uncle Vanya

Okay so there were plays after plays after plays after PLAYS in the West End over the last year. It was quite hard to narrow down. I LOVED Emilia, as did a lot of women I know. But part of me is wishful thinking here, purely because it opened right at the start of the season. The only category I am confident in is the leading actors in a play. Although I currently have no clue as to who will win. Fleabag just about made it with 30 performances and I doubt they wouldn’t want to honour this production in some way. Especially as it sold out in minutes, think of the revenue streams!

Who do you hope will be nominated in the acting categories this year? Let me know who you think/hope will be nominated!

Until next time,
